8:41 pm
community forum that would describe what the plans for the rebuild of saint luke suz about. i think we had a honest exchange and made it clear it is our hope and expectation this isn't just a presentationf, this is a opportunity to talk to people in the community but about the what they need in health care. as we discussed from the folks from cpmc, we have gone a long way-there was a time the hospital inpatient is closed, this is a time for us to say that decision is made, how can we work together to make this the best hospital possible. i'm hoping the 4m we jointly plan with thythem will be a opportunity for people who historically used saint lukes and continue to use saint lukes to help people make decisions understand what the needs are and they take them seriously >> thank you, next speaker please
8:42 pm
>> my name is kim barns and i was a primary care physician at saint lukes for 32 years leaving 3 years ago. i would thrike address twoe issues, the dibeaty center and lack of community participation in the planning of services. on march 12 of last year cpmc announced the lay off at the dibeaty center you heard about which amount today the entire bilingual and bicultural staff. this was done in face of the fact that the large majority of patient at the center were spanish speaking and 52 percent had dibeaty of pregnancy, a serious condition. [inaudible] use interpreters, a poor substitute for spanish speaking providers. physicians involved with the center were out raged
8:43 pm
as well at patient. cpmc's reply, we'll study the condition and report back which they have not done. people have to call a third party to get an appointment rather than having something directly add the center. the second issue i wish to address is the lack of accountability and transparency for cpmc. for over 2 years sf [inaudible] tried to establish a relationship with cpmc that allows the community to participate in the planning of services but was met with a stone wall. cpmc did convee a group of providers and citizens, but it was a update not a discussion. cpmc is blowing the opportunity of developing a relationship with community after years of
8:44 pm
mistrust and battle. to restore credibility cpmc needs to consult with the broad representation of the community [inaudible] holding a series of meetings [inaudible] >> next speaker. >> good afternoon. gordon mars with jobs of justice. access to jobs at cpmc especially the non construction jobs is a high priority. this is due to the fact cpmc is the second largest employer in the sit a and the high rate of unemployment that sin san francisco. [inaudible] 2 years ago on the premise of creating permanent jobs and selling them with san franciscans from high unemployment neighborhoods. cpmc entry level hiring for non
8:45 pm
construction jobs is horrible for the first year and a half of the development agreement with a spike in hiring just in the last few months that allowed cpmc to claim they are coming close to the 40 percent hiring go. we like to hope that the improvement in hiring over the last few months is not just a aberration and one time trend, but given cpmc's performance for the first year and a half wree skeptical and we'll continue the hiring especially from it disadvantaged neighborhoods. thank you for your attention on this and look for full compliance with the pornts hiring goals >> thank you very much. next speaker please >> thank you and good afternoon supervisors. my name is lay law and with china for

recruiter but no solution was reached. secondly, a acompliant applied to a house keeping aid position. staff receivered e-mail notification that the client had been selected for a interview, but the e-mail didn't provide the time or location. staff contacted the relf agency and otolds cpmc directly contacted the client several times and left a voice mail, but the client said she received no missed called or e-mails. [inaudible] however this time the client was told that she was called for a in person interview and told to wait for a phone call but this was the last time the client heard from cpmc. i recommend transapparent communication regarding hiring procedures wait time and next steps in the hiring process. prompt follow up with clients regarding and
